• The Quick and the Dead

    The Quick and the Dead

    ★★★★

    I've always heard this was one of the lesser Raimi films. I don't know why though, because this was so much fun.

  • Morbius

    Morbius

    An incomprehensible mess that has absolutely nothing even remotely interesting going on.

    Also, that has to be the most desperate post-credits scene I've ever seen.

  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    ★★★★½

    Had to rewatch this after witnessing Ke Huy Quan's glorious return to our screens.

    Is it misogynist? Yeah. Is it racist? Oh, absolutely. But it is also a completely insane, bonkers masterpiece of an adventure movie that I love with all my heart.

  • The Lost City

    The Lost City

    ★★★

    A fun bit of adventuring nonsense.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    Probably one of the most insane films made on this side of the 80's. Just absolute glorious madness.

    Also, working in the costume department for this movie must've been a lot of fun.

  • Where the Truth Lies

    Where the Truth Lies

    ★★½

    None of this would've happened if they'd known about The Golden Rule.

  • Mothering Sunday

    Mothering Sunday

    ★★½

    Naked bodies, pretty dresses and not much else.

  • Resolution

    Resolution

    ★★★½

    What I like about these kinds of microbudget genre films is that the good ones often find very interesting and ambitious ways to play with their limited resources and Resolution is a great example of this.

    I also really enjoyed how most of the smaller roles only show up once, which creates a wonderfully weird vibe.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    The plot is surprisingly straightforward for a movie involving multiversal shenanigans and I definitely am not on board with some of the narrative choices in this (mainly everything involving the villain and their motivations).

    That said, it's fantastic to see a MCU film that actually feels like it was made by an actual director. In many ways (honestly, in everything except the plot), this feels like a Sam Raimi film first and a MCU movie second and it's so much better for it.

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★½

    Before seeing Sam Raimi's, hopefully, glorious return to cinemas, I decided to rewatch this absolute horror classic. I'm still not a fan of the tree rape scene, but the rest is gory, gnarly brilliance.

  • Moon Knight

    Moon Knight

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hey, look at that, another MCU show that should probably just have been a movie.

    I found it absolutely astonishing how in the final episode they have characters doing important stuff off-screen thrice.

    Harrow fights the Egyptian Pantheon? Oh cool, that should be good.
    <Cut to Harrow standing over the corpses of the avatars>

    Oh shit, our heroes are caught by the villain, how will they fight their way out of this?
    <He fights his way out of the situation…

  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★½

    As soon as they know where the Omega actually is, the movie kinda deflates and it definitely would've been better without the final scene. However, everything before that is tons of fun.
